That should give one a clue as to how well they perform .
airplanes usually have something like that on their wings. look at a 747 or most other modern large jets. they usually have upturned wings at the end, and sometimes just flat lines on top of the wings. these help prevent vortices, so theres less drag on the wing and air flows smoother.

seems like the opposite idea on these trucks...

I see how they would work and I do know there's similar things on airplanes. The only problem is it seems like you would have to be driving 70+ mph for you to see any affect and even then it's going to be so small.
